Movie Info

Three seemingly unrelated stories converge in a surprising way. Elizabeth Austin (Tess Harper), wife of Reverend Robert Austin (Chris Sarandon), pines for the son who fled their religious household. Grace Bellamy (Bonnie Hunt), now in her 40s, wonders about the son she gave up for adoption. And kindhearted AIDS sufferer Mark (Kip Pardue) falls in love with motel owner George (Michael Kelly) while trying to come to the rescue of some loggerhead turtles.

  • The dramatic tension is nil. But the performances, particularly by Hunt (in a non-comedic role, for a change), are worth a look.

  • ... an understated and heartfelt story, superbly acted, with a strong sense of people and place.

  • ... if you can shake out some of the chafing bits of sand that weigh down Loggerheads, you'll find a heartfelt story about people coming to terms with irrevocable loss.

  • Despite a meandering tone, Loggerheads is consistently watchable thanks to committed actors playing recognizable, decent folks just trying to do the right thing -- or rectify mistakes of the past.

    January 12, 2006 | Rating: B-
  • This quiet community and family drama set on the North Carolina shore offers a bighearted outlook on how to absorb change and defeat.

  • Slow, unadorned, compassionate, and earnest, Loggerheads is a low-fi throwback to the independent films of the 1980s and '90s -- heartland miniatures hewn from plainspoken lives.

    A bit sappy but very likeable movie about a woman's search for the child she gave up for adoption.
